Poland to hold general election on Sunday October 25

Polish voters will go to the polls on Sunday to choose the full slate of 460 MPs to the lower house and 100 Senators in an election that could bring a change of government as chief opposition party Law & Justice (PiS) continues to ride high in the polls and largely set the tone of the ongoing campaign ahead of current governing party Civic Platform (PO).

The two leading candidates for Prime Minister are Beata Szydlo, deputy leader of PiS and the current PM Ewa Kopacz. Szydlo was named as PiS candidate for PM shortly after the successful presidential campaign of Andrzej Duda, which Szydlo managed.
